Thorpe Park offer many VIP packages for the public to experience, these range from various back stage tours to coaster climbs. We have done a backstage tour in the past so decided now was the time to climb the parks tallest coaster (with steps that is!) The Swarm.

Its not all about the climb, once greeted by your host you are taken into the rides console to see the working of the coaster, a bit of a history lesson before strapping up and started to head up to the top. It is a huge climb don’t under estimate how far it is up the top but once up there it is all worth it!

The host will give you a history quiz of the park over the years and will allow you to spend a good amount of time to soak in the views, all of which below speak for themselves! Well worth a go for anyone.
